Under a John Cassaday cover (Cassaday serves as series cover artist), writer Scott (Batman) Beatty and artist Carlos Rafael present an original 12 page comic book adventure – “The Death of Buck Rogers”! This is where it all begins and Dynamite’s plans for Buck Rogers follow the model that they’ve followed over the years beginning with Red Sonja, embracing the history of such classic characters, but giving them a modern edge for today’s audiences!  All this, and for a quarter to introduce you to the new canon of Buck Rogers!

The cursed siblings are drawn to the cult compound of Devin Irons and the reborn abomination wearing the skin of their mother.  An army of 99 innocent souls under the demonic influence of their father stand in the way of this long coming family reunion.  As the blood spills into the streets, the final dark ritual is enacted and an otherworldly force begins to seep into our reality.

When Silas uncovers the carnage unleashed by his siblings he must walk in their steps to end the curse of the family line.  But even his righteous anger pales in comparison to the power that has been unleashed in the wake of the slaughter.  It’s the final supernatural showdown as the Irons collide and nothing can stand between the raw hatred of a manipulative father and years of unimaginable horror endured by an abused son.

Six guns and the supernatural collide in the explosive conclusion to the Dead Irons saga.  Written by James Kuhoric (Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash), illustrated by Jason Shawn Alexander (BPRD), and based on character designs and art direction by Jae Lee (The Dark Tower).
